Chinese export porcelain evokes images of rare treasures gracing the stately rooms and tables of the West, but what of the artisans who created them? In this book, Shirley Ganse situates Chinese export porcelain amid the intersection of art and commerce on a global scale, while at the same time telling the remarkable human story of the craftspeople who helped shape China’s artistic traditions. What emerges is a vibrant portrait of global art and a must-have book for lovers of Chinese art.
Shirley Ganse is an art historian, curator, and lecturer in Chinese art. She has been teaching Chinese art seminars with the Smithsonian Institution since 1981.
